Vicki’s Note – MyHeritage.com is a genealogy site where you can build a Family Tree for free. Access to genealogy documents and other family’s trees is by subscription. You get partial hints of shared ancestors by email after free “joining”.
Once you have a tree created there, you get savings offers by email. When I have looked at the offers, I shortly after get a phone call from MyHeritage offering an even lower discount on whatever. The site seems to be less proprietary than Ancestory.com.
The only problem that I had with my free family tree builder (and some other companies) was that I had to fight to get my preferred Internet top tool bar back instead of the MyHeritage one. Be careful when downloading any site to un-check any McAfee free computer security (if you already have something), or banner/homepage/toolbar downloads, etc. before accepting.
MyHeritage recently started offering DNA testing, equivalent to Ancestry.com’s, except it is by an easier cheek swab method instead of spitting into a vial! (My Mom had to spit a long time to get the required. ) MyHeritage claims to have more international customers than Ancestry.com so you may get more matches.
If you have another DNA test from elsewhere, you can download it to MyHeritage testing for free.

The MyHeritage DNA test takes less than a minute to do, with a simple cheek swab. Mail the sample to our lab for analysis, and you’ll be invited to view your results on MyHeritage one month later. All DNA data is kept private and secure and is never shown to or shared with anyone without your permission. See a cool video showing how our lab processes your DNA sample.
MyHeritage DNA gives you two excellent features: DNA Matching for finding relatives, including those you never knew you had, and detailed Ethnicity Estimates that map your ethnic and geographic origins.
Our DNA kits have had a great reception and tens of thousands have been ordered in the first few weeks since the launch. DNA Matches are available with other users of MyHeritage and users of other DNA testing services who have uploaded their DNA data to MyHeritage. If you have already tested your DNA elsewhere, you don’t need to buy our test — just upload your DNA data for free to get free matches. If you have not tested your DNA before, now is the best time to do so. You’ll get to advance your family history while taking advantage of the low introductory price (tip: get more than one kit to give to your relatives). You’ll receive matches on MyHeritage that you won’t get anywhere else thanks to our huge international audience.
See our blog post for more details and screenshots of the wonderful reports you will get, and read about our unique Founder Populations project which provides the most accurate ethnicity data ever.
DNA is the perfect enhancement to your family history journey. It doesn’t replace traditional research methods, but complements them. Order your MyHeritage DNA kit today for only $79.
